From carving the wood to the final varnish, crafting a violin has a musicality all its own

As machines supplant people in every field from production to the arts, there are still some things that are simply better done with a human touch. A violin that comes off a factory line just can’t compare with one crafted in a workshop. Shot at the the Chicago School of Violin Making, this meditative and pleasingly resonant short documentary traces the meticulous, months-long process of creating a musical instrument almost entirely by hand.
